Amal Fashanu attended a meeting with David Cameron to discuss racism in football at 10 Downing Street on February 22, 2012 in London, England. Racism in English football has become a major issue after a series of recent high-profile incidents. This is an issue close to her heart; she is the daughter of John Fashanu and niece of Justin Fashanu, her late uncle who was the only professional footballer in Britain ever to come out publicly as gay.
Amal has also been campaigning both to honour her uncle’s memory and fight homophobia in the game. Read the moving account of her campaign in her words here: http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2012/feb/04/sports-charter-homophobia-football#start-of-comments. Since she started, it has emerged that Premier League clubs are now expected to sign the Sports Charter, which includes a pledge to combat homophobia. Keep up the good work Amal.
So what does a girl wear to meet the prime minster to discuss a serious issue such as racism in football? The lovely and talented Amal chose Mo Saïque Bonica boots in black and a Gomez Gracia dress for the occasion and I’m sure you’ll agree that she looks great. Mo Saïque and Gomez Gracia also teamed up to dress the semi-finalists of Estonia’s Next Top Model. Watch this space for blog posts soon.
